If you're interested in a wintry wonderland getaway, the Whitepod Hotel in the Swiss Alps might be exactly what you're looking for. The property, which features a series of 15 geodesic domes, overlooks an idyllic mountain landscape. While enjoying the gorgeous view, guests can partake in luxurious spa treatments and engage in fun outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, paragliding, and dog sledding.
This unique hotel experience offers a range of pods to suit your vacationing needs–Cozy, Family, and Deluxe. All accommodations include a wood-burning stove, fully-equipped bathroom, large terrace, access to the sauna, and daily tea time. The Deluxe version, however, has the most in the way of comfort, featuring a satellite TV, minibar, in-pod massages, and morning breakfast delivery.
In addition to the pods, there is a reception area that's an easy 20-minute walk from the suites. Upon checking in, guests are given a backpack, map, headlight, snowshoes, and walking stick to help them get to their pod. Part adventure and part luxury, the Whitepod Hotel has something that appeals to many types of travelers.
